If you haven't been watching the show 'American Song Contest' on NBC you are missing out! The grand finale is Monday night and one of the finalists is K-pop artist AleXa from Tulsa, Oklahoma!
Her bio on the NBC's 'American Song Contest' page reads "Proud to represent the state where she was born and raised until the age of 21, Alex Christine, known professionally as AleXa (알렉사), is a K-pop singer, dancer and songwriter who grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A lifelong dancer, AleXa was first drawn to K-pop because of its strong performance identity. After nearly a million fan votes determined her the winner of online talent competition Rising Legends, she was one of the 96 chosen to participate in "Produce 48," the most competitive audition show in Korea. In 2019, AleXa made her multilingual K-pop debut with "Bomb," which has received nearly 22 million views to date and hit No. 7 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. A year later, AleXa released extended plays "Do Or Die" and "Decoherence," garnering wins for two of Korea's most prestigious awards. In 2021, AleXa released Y2K-inspired "ReviveR" with dance track "Xtra," performed the national anthem for the Los Angeles Dodgers and became the first K-pop artist to host a fan meeting in the metaverse within the action-shooter game "Scavengers."
As an Oklahoman and K-pop fan I'm obviously rooting for her and can't wait to watch the finale Monday night on KFOR.
She also just released a teaser video for the music video to her song 'Wonderland' which is featured on the show.
